Prologue to “The Fortress Stone”

Since the dawn of time, tyrants have conspired to rob humanity of the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. In 1787, with the stroke of a pen, the founders of our nation formed the Constitution of the United States of America. This most inspired of documents has stood for over two centuries as a protective fortress, sheltering generation after generation from those who would destroy freedom.

The Gilbert Community comes together every year to study and honor this monumental document. Gilbert Constitution Week now presents an original Anthem to the Constitution of the United States, “The Fortress Stone”.

As we sing this song of freedom, consider our role in defending the very fortress that defends us all. Consider both its immense power, but also its fragile vulnerability. Built of ancient ink and generations of precious blood, this wall of protection is only as strong as our devotion to know, to live, and to safeguard its truths. The fortress of liberty is built stone by stone on the allegiance and resolve of we, the very people it protects. One by one united, we are the Fortress Stone.
